MS Language Arts

The GCA Middle School Language Arts program seeks excellence in mastering English both in breadth and depth.  We offer a variety of courses that the students take from grades six through eight.   Along with a focus on critical thinking and analytical response to literature in the Reading classes, students also engage in rigorous Grammar programs that highlight the foundational base of the English language.  Whether diagramming a sentence or mulling over obscurities in a classic novel, students are encouraged to work with diligence and integrity.  Classroom activities vary with different teachers, but the vision remains that it is in the act of active, participatory learning that people learn.  As professional educators, we not only encourage a love for the English literature and language, but we seek to cultivate a healthy relationship with each student, as we encourage them toward intellectual and spiritual maturity.
